The battery of your phone is one of the most important parts of the gadget. If you do not take care of it, there are chances that it will fail and require replacement. One of the ways you can make sure the battery is well maintained is by maintaining it. There are some tips that you can follow to make sure you ensure your phone has a better battery life. Some of the best tips include:

Charging frequency

The frequency you charge your phone will determine how the battery life will work. For example, if you charge it on a regular basis, you may end up damaging the battery. The best way to charge your phone would be when it is at least 15% or less. Allowing the battery to get drained almost completely will prolong its life. If it is possible, you should try and charge it only during the evening. Additionally, you should unplug it from the charger once it is full. Most people leave their chargers connected overnight. This means the system will still be receiving power even after the battery is full. Doing this multiple times will have a negative effect on the battery. It is therefore wise to unplug the charge from the mains power outlet once your phone is fully charged.


How bright or dull your screen is will affect the life of your battery. If you prefer using bright settings, make sure you change this when you go to dimly lit areas. For example, if you are indoors and your setting is bright, you can decide to dim it a little. Bright settings should only be used when you are outdoors. Since most of the time we spend indoors, the setting should be adjusted accordingly. 

Update your apps

Apps need to be updated to keep them running at optimum. Updates will help your apps run more efficiently. As a result, they will end up using less battery power than before. When you see an update notification for an app requesting to install an update, make sure you do this. At the same time, you should get rid of apps that you are not using by uninstalling, deleting or stopping them from running. When you use an android phone, it is common to have multiple apps running even when you are not using the, for example, you may have used the calculator and minimized it instead of closing it. You may also have accessed your calendar or diary and forgot to close it. The more apps you have running the higher the chances of using your battery excessively. If you need to root Galaxy S8 for this to work, make sure you do it the right way. 

Power saving

Use power saving mode should you have it. The good thing about such a mode is that it will limit the battery use to important applications on your phone. This will include making and receiving phone calls and text messages. If you want to access additional apps, you will be required to get out of power saving mode. The same may be the case if you need to go online or use Bluetooth and other radio or media applications on your phone.
